  • To collect and preserve objects which help to establish or illustrate its history.
  • To acquire and manage any property available to the Society.
  • To interest young people in their town's heritage

Holiday Season at The Old Store!

The Holidays are upon us, and The Old Store will kick off the festivities with a Holiday

We are eager to share our finds with you, which include a unique array of gifts, decorations and stocking stuffers, many made in the USA.

Personal Accessories feature a wide array of jewelry at great prices; beautiful scarves; cuddly hats; gloves (including texting gloves), playful and cozy socks and handbags.  We also have brushes and mirrors, hair decorations and slim flashlights to put in your pocket for dark nights and darker restaurants!

The ‘kitchen store’ has a wide choice of towels, cutting boards, cheese knives, trays, winsome graters, scissors, timers, nuts and mouth-watering beautifully packaged toffee.

Our large selection of tabletop candles is supplemented with beautiful hand decorated tapers and table candles that will make perfect gifts or home decoration.

Children can enjoy dress-up costumes, puzzles, puppets, onesies, socks, wind-up toys and games.  We have great, really fun kids’ watches with an animal theme.

There is a choice of decorations to enhance your home, from country to cosmopolitan, with both woodland themes and glittering, elegant ornaments.

Sherman Signature pieces include brass ornaments, note paper, local history books, throws, fleeces, sweatshirts and hats.

During the Holiday season beginning November 6th The Old Store will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 12 to 4, or whenever the flag is flying.  We look forward to serving you.
